Hyundai and Fox Marketing Cars have announced that they have teamed up to create what they claim to be the most powerful Street-focused Veloster Turbo ever built. The car will be on display at the 2013 SEMA show in Las Vegas kicking off November 5. The Veloster Turbo is powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder direct-injected turbocharged engine.
For the show car, that engine was significantly modified with a new 845 Motorsports Turbo upgrade, BorgWarner EFR Turbo, front-mounted intercooler, water/methanol injection system, and a custom ECU tune. The car runs on VP Racing 101 octane fuel. Modifications to the engine result in 370 hp.
The vehicle also has a number of handling improvements including a strut brace, chassis bracing, and fully adjustable ARK Performance coil-over suspension. Inside the car also gets special Street Pro LE seats and four-point harnesses. The car also has upgraded six-piston brakes in the front, custom wheels, and custom touches on the body kit. The car is painted in a custom mixed color called R-M Oynx HD Waterborne SkyAqua Pearl.
“The Veloster Turbo was designed with affordable performance in mind,” said Scott Margason, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor America. “Fox Marketing’s unique concept showcases the versatility of our turbocharged 4-cylinder Gamma engine family while expanding the overall performance envelope for the Veloster line.”Filed Under: Auto News
